“In recent years, activists have adopted the face of Guy Fawkes to serve as a symbol. They do this to show unity and as a disguise so that their voice can be heard—regardless of their social class, their race, their ethnicity, their gender, their family or their employer. In my Mask, I adorn the hat and background with a double headed serpent, the sisiyuł—the Kwakwaka’wakw symbol of the Warrior—in the hope that it will give our young people—our warriors—the voice to speak up on all issues of vital importance.”
